Summer may be almost over, but despair not, as there are tonnes of exciting launches to come this Autumn (including a new Slapp).
As the temperature drops, perhaps you might take solace, in the opportunity a new season offers to tuck into old faves without looking OTT; and the chance to test out some great new products. These are five of our faves so far.
Nars Climax Mascara
When Nars release a new mascara, you better believe our interest is piqued. And this one is excellent. The glossy red tube makes you want to reach for your best leather skirt.
The formula is lightweight and buildable, extending lashes with minimal clumpage.
Kiehls Herbal Infused Micellar Cleansing Water
Micellar waters are truly the unsung hero of any makeup bag. Not only do they quickly remove makeup without any irritation, but they’re so necessary to have on hand for any clumsy mistakes.
This one contains skin soothing ingredients like lemon balm and thyme, making it a double threat.
Urban Decay Lo Fi Lip Mousse
The smudged out, blotted off lip trend is showing no signs of going away, and this innovative little tub from Urban Decay is a fantastic way to achieve it. It has a soft matte consistency and a medium coverage, meaning it can be dabbed on for a stain effect or built up for a more dramatic vibe.
There are tons of beautiful shades, too – our favourite is Echo, a purpleish nude.
Benefit Brow Contour Pro Pen
Remember those pens you used to have which had the options of many colours, depending on which you clicked into place? Well, this is that, but for brows. Each pen contains two brow shades, an edge definer and a highlighter.
For those who pride themselves on a HD-looking eyebrow, this is literally all you need, in one charmingly retro package.
Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask
For anyone who loves the original Clear Improvement mask (which, by our calculations, is pretty much everyone) this is a thrilling new development. It combines the pore-sucking powers of the original with calming and humectant honey, making it ideal for clearing breakouts without over drying.
Perfect for autumn, when complexions tend to be more on the sandpapery side.
Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Away Concealer & Powder
We couldn’t finish the list without Charlotte Tilbury’s new Magic makeup range. The translucent Magic Powder adds a winter friendly glow to skin and comes in light, medium and dark. Also new to the range is Charlotte’s Magic Away Concealer, a stretchy liquid formula, with dome-shaped sponge applicator.
This concealer comes in a range of shades and brightens the under-eye within seconds. Coming to the app soon.
